Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Bush press conference, right now, which I am watching against my better judgment.

He was just asked about these numbers.  He said the "methodology has been pretty well discredited" and the numbers are "not credible" and "guessed at."

Not true.  Moving on.

He also said, and this made me shout out loud, something like this:  "These are a people who want so badly to be free... that these are levels of violence that they are willing to tolerate."

Excuse me?  Willing to tolerate?  Have you asked them?  Are you high?!

Honestly, he said it.  I could not make this up if I tried.
